What makes Paul Vincent famous?
The name Paul Vincent probably doesn’t ring a bell, nor does his photograph, but the 52-year-old is actually the twin brother of the world-famous actor Vin Diesel.
While Vin Diesel has managed to earn worldwide stardom, and accumulate a wealth of an estimated $160 million, his twin brother prefers to stay out of the spotlight.
Read to find out everything you need to know about Paul Vincent, the mysterious twin brother of Vin Diesel.
Paul Vincent’s early years
Paul Vincent Sinclair and his brother Marc Sinclair (Vin Diesel) were born on July 18th, 1967, in Alameda County California to mother Delora Sherleen Vincent. Their biological father is unknown, and the two boys were raised by their stepdad Irvin H. Vincent who adopted them and also gave them his last name.
Irvin Vincent was an African-American teacher in acting, and a theater manager.
But what actually got Marc (Vin) interested in acting as a mere incident. At the age of 7, he, Paul Vincent and a few friends broke into a local theater – the Theater for the New City in Greenwich Village to vandalize it. The children got caught by the artistic director of the theater Chrystal Field who offered them to take part in an upcoming play instead of him calling the police. This is how Vin Diesel made his stage debut in 1974 in the play Dinosaur Door by Barbara Garson.
While Vin remained active in the theater while growing up and went to NYC’s Hunter College, where he studied writing and screenwriting, his twin brother Paul Vincent seemed to be uninterested in pursuing a career in acting.
His educational background is unknown.

More about Vin Diesel’s career
After making his debut on the theater stage at the age of 7, Vin Diesel continued to be actively involved in theater during his childhood and high school years.
He became even more interested in building a career in the entertainment industry after enrolling in Hunter College, where he began working on screenwriting.
His first film role was in “Awakenings” from 1990, where he was an extra. Five years later, he starred in the short film “Multi-Facial” from 1995 in which his brother participated as a sound editor as well.
In 1998, he played the role of Private Caparzo in “Saving Private Ryan,” and then also appeared in the films “Boiler Room and Pitch Black” in 2000.
His real breakthrough, though came with the release of “The Fast and the Furious” in 2001, where Vin Diesel starred as Dominic Toretto, alongside Paul Walker, who later on became one of his best friends.
Diesel starred in ‘xXx’ in 2020, which was another blockbuster movie that spread his fame across the globe.
Since then, Vin Diesel has become a much sought after actor and has participated in all of the films from the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, “The Chronicles of Riddick” franchise, the “xXx” franchise, and as a voice actor in the “Avengers” and “Guardian of Galaxy” franchises, among other productions.
Paul Vincent’s net worth
Since almost nothing is known about the career of Paul Vincent, it is difficult to get an exact estimate of his net worth. Some authoritative sources claim that he has an accumulated wealth of about $400,000 from his work with “The Fast and the Furious” films with his brother, and his work on the short film “Multi-Facial” in 1995.
His brother, on the other hand, has a net worth of about $160 million thanks to his highly successful career in Hollywood.
With his growing success, it is highly likely that Vin Diesel will be dominating the big screens for years to come, and his personal wealth will continue to grow over the years.
